Testimonials

The Demont team clearly had personal passion for our mission, which was crucial to earning trust and respect among our volunteers.

Ben Rose, Former Executive Director

The Green Mountain Club, Waterbury Center, VT

We were really pleased with the guidance, structure, expertise, and warmth that Demont provided us with in our campaign. 

Peg Thompson, Vestry Member

The Demont team members are creative problem-solvers that connect very well with our alumni. Most importantly, they are willing to go the extra mile to get the job done.

Peter Hare, Executive Director

Keewaydin Foundation, Salisbury, VT and Ontario, Canada

Hyde aspired to raise about $8M; however, before launching our last campaign, we decided to hire a consulting firm to help us. It was probably the single smartest thing we did. Demont Associates helped us raise $16M – far more than any of our staff or Board members imagined we could raise and six times more than any prior campaign.

Malcolm W. Gauld, President

Hyde Schools, Bath, ME and Woodstock, CT

Demont’s senior officer was very adept at ‘seeing the forest for the trees,’ and helping on major strategic issues along the two-year campaign period.

Bob Clark, Chief Professional Officer

None of us envisioned that we had the capacity to raise over $3 million in a year, and our fund-raising programs are stronger than they have ever been.

Mary Ann Allen, Chief Executive Officer

Wildwood Programs, Inc., Schenectady, NY

This was a challenging campaign with several unique obstacles, some unanticipated, and Demont Associates met every one of these with intelligence, perspective, and imagination.

Robert Grabill, Vice President of the Board of Directors

People were impressed by Demont’s flexibility in meeting difficult deadlines and meeting our requirements and need for changes… As a fellow consultant working in this field, I learned a lot.

Tom Wolf, Executive and Artistic Director

Bay Chamber Concerts, Cambridge, MA and Camden, ME

I initially was unsure about the benefit of a planning study in large part because we had run two successful campaigns before without a study and because it is a lot of money! But the detail of information received and the appreciation expressed by many of those interviewed that we were doing this in a planned and serious way has won me over. I feel that what we learned will not only benefit the planning for the campaign but for a lot of our work in other parts of our effort as well.
